    I swapped over my bootcamp install from vista ultimate x86 to windows 7 x86 RC1 today and everything seems good.... except my keys arent all correct. Except not all my keys are correct. Backslash is hash now, shift-2 is ", shift-3 is £, ?, shift comma is my @ symbol and after trying every symbol and shift alternative i cant find backslash at all. Im in australia, but i setup this install as UK, which i went back and changed the location to US, but with no luck. Is this a MBP/RC1 problem, or is it related to the way i installed it?

    Cheers
    Luke

    It works fine for me, on install i selected that i had a Macbook Pro English Keyboard. Are you sure you told it you have a Mac keyboard? Also you know you have to install bootcamp tools from the Bootcamp DVD which comes with your Mac.

    Cheers for that. I ended up having to remove the uk english version which got all my keys back to normal, then go into bootcamp control panel and select use f keys as standard function keys so that i got my volume control and other mac keys working...

    Did you install it by starting the .iso inside XP, or burnt it on a disc and start off with it?
